Mrs. Akou A. was born in 1977 and is married and the mother of two children. Her main business is selling personal care products which she presently carries through the streets in a basin balanced on her head. Very ambitious and intent on helping her husband provide for their family, she is requesting a loan in the amount of US$ 1000 so that she can open a little kiosk where she can display and sell her products. This will free her from the necessity of walking from place to place to sell her wares.
